Scottish independence: SNP defend their planned defective immigration policy to swamp Scotland post independence, working class young Scots will be denied a future stretching into generations, this is independence?

Dear All

Already before a single vote has been cast in the Scottish independence referendum, Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ and Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon want to condemn working class Scots to a life of restricted opportunities and no hope!

Their idea is flood Scotland with immigrants, the social engineering idea which has already been tried in Britain was a spectacular failure which the Labour Party has been forced to admit.

The SNP says that an independent Scotland would have an immigration policy characterised by "fairness and compassion."

Given that the SNP doesn’t stand for fairness, equality and social justice even within their own party, where working class members are firmly the second class members, how much trust can we put on the word of Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon?


The SNP will say anything to get your vote, however on the subject of immigration and citizenship, they have blundered badly.

The Nationalist will officially lose the Scottish independence referendum held in September 2014, that is a given now, the white paper which was the last bullet of the crumbling leadership of Salmond and Sturgeon was an utter failure.

Out of touch and a failure to understand the task at hand, there is a lack of genuine talent in the SNP, the white paper described as the most comprehensive blueprint for an independent country ever published is just risible.

But let’s get back to the SNP plan to swamp Scotland, Fiona Hyslop says this move will attract skilled workers and help achieve sustainable economic growth.

Fiona Hyslop, the Culture and External Affairs Secretary was previously in charge of Education in Scotland, she was so bad at it that people were screaming for her to be removed, in due course she was, will a track record like that, would you trust her with immigration?

Alex Salmond says that Scotland has huge talent, if that is the case, then why do we need immigration of skilled workers?

It is quite simple, the SNP are quite willing to say totally opposite things depending on who their audience that they are speaking to.

Any country which is independent will have an immigration policy, however the bizarre claim that the SNP have made over citizenship in the event of a Yes vote simply is ridiculous and naïve.
The issue of Scottish immigration policy has previously been addressed publicly unelectable Glasgow list MSP Humza Yousaf, he has bemoaned the restrictive approach pursued from Westminster.

Apparently Westminster likes to ask questions of those who wish to live and work here!

Yousaf asserts that independence is the only way to get an immigration policy suited to Scotland’s needs. We would have a different immigration policy from what was left of the UK. You can only wonder if these clowns ever think anything through before glibly declaring unsustainable policy.

The facts of the matter are also where a land border exists with different immigration policies on either side of it; you get border controls for both goods and people. 

Passport controls and searches to you and me.

Laughingly I would like to return to Ms. Hyslop’s parting shot:

Immigration policy in an independent Scotland would take into account "Scottish principles of fairness and compassion."

Anyone remember the "Scottish principles of fairness and compassion" of Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon as Health Minister when she left Scottish women to die of cancer by failing to provide the same cancer drugs available to English people?

Another bizarre claim by Hyslop said:

"With independence we would be able to grow our working-age population by ensuring young Scots have the opportunity to build a career in Scotland, and a controlled immigration policy will be another gain."

How does immigration help young Scots when there aren’t enough jobs to go round already?

As to promises from the SNP, they aren’t worth the paper they are written on, Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon can’t be entrusted with the future of not just young Scots but the entire population.
